SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
You can arrive as early and stay as late as you want. We turn on the lights at 6:30 a.m. and clean up all the mud at 6:00 p.m.
This is meant to be a fun, relaxing day, so plan on arriving at least an hour before your wave time to park, check in and get ready to get muddy. Waves will run every 15 minutes starting at 8:00 a.m. and ending at 2:00 p.m. Check your registration confirmation for your wave time.
As if running through mud wasn’t enough fun, we have a few other things planned to make this an event to remember!

DJ Red Line will be pumping out your favorite songs all day long, while 80s cover band The Breakfast Club will hit the stage at 11:30 and will play until 3:30.
Throughout the day the Pretty Muddy Mavens will be on the lookout for the best costumes, so it’s time to get creative! Need some inspiration? Check out some options from our friends at BuyCostumes.com.

WHAT TO WEAR
Wear whatever you feel comfortable exercising in, as long as you don’t mind it getting dirty.
WHAT TO BRING
A valid ID and a signed copy of your waiver for check in. Download a waiver here.
Change of clothes. Bring a fresh set of comfortable clothes (including shoes) to change into after your wave. Don’t forget to include a plastic bag (to stash your muddy gear), waterproof sunscreen (sunburn and mud are not a good look) and a towel to dry off. There will be plenty of bathrooms on site, showers to rinse off and private changing areas so you can get clean and enjoy the day.
A camera. These are pretty awesome memories you’ll want to remember and share! We’ll also have professional photographers throughout the course capturing all the dirty details.
Cash and credit cards. We’ll have a variety of food and beverages available for purchase throughout the day, along with some pretty awesome gear.
Friends and family! We’ll have lots of places for them to cheer you on, take photos and add to the day’s excitement.
And here’s what to leave at home:
Jewelry. We’d hate for your priceless family tiara to get lost in the mud!
Pets. Really, who wants to drive home with a wet, muddy dog?
